The Microsoft search engine Bing recently featured Belize’s largest island – Ambergris Caye – one day before Belize’s Independence Day on September 21!
Bing also included pop ups such as “You think this spot looks super for snorkeling then you should see the natural wonder 46 miles away…” They are referring to the Great Blue Hole which is a part of Belize’s Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World heritage site. The Blue Hole was made famous when Jacques Cousteau led a Calypso diving expedition back in 1972 and debunked local myths that it was bottomless or home to strange monsters of the deep. Instead, he discovered a place of extraordinary beauty and what was to become one of the most highly regarded diving spots in the world.
Other Bing pops ups also included mentions of Belize completing 30 years on September 21, top swimming spots and a comment questioning whether Ambergris Caye is too beautiful to be named similarly to washed-ashore sperm whale vomit.
Dorian Nunez, an Ambergris Caye native and editor of Ambergristoday.com stated that the specific place viewed in the above picture is Siete Canales, translated as Seven Channels in English. It is located at the southernmost tip of Ambergris Caye and is easily viewed whenever you are flying into Ambergris Caye.
